CPEE Honors Two for Extensive Service
At the CPEE 20-year celebratory reception in December, two key individuals were formally recognised for their efforts in the establishment of CPEE and its development from the earliest days. Prof. Kerry McManus, AM, and Mr Walter Holtrop were applauded for the critical roles they have played. Prof. Kerry McManus (image left), was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation in recognition of the academic expertise and credibility he provided from the outset which greatly assisted CPEE gaining formal accreditation as a registered higher education provider.
20 Years – CPEE Achieves Milestone
At the end of 2016, after 20 years of growth and enhancement, the CPEE vision is little changed. The circumstances which were the catalyst for the creation of CPEE those 20 years ago remain and stakeholder demands for the outcomes CPEE provides to meet these needs, have only intensified in recent years.
At a celebratory reception for key players in CPEE history, held on 1 December 2016, many past and present Council Members, Unit Writers and Unit Chairs attended along with the unique gathering of all past CPEE Independent Chairmen and CPEE CEO’s. The inaugural Chairman Lance Midgley and inaugural CEO, Ken Mavin were warmly recognised for their major contributions to the establishment of CPEE.
2016 Student Excellence Award Winners
The judging for the 2016 Student Excellence Awards was completed late in December following ratification of student results across 11 eligible units throughout Semesters 1 and 2 in 2016.
With many high performing students this posed a somewhat welcomed but difficult task in the judges reaching their final determination, however all eleven recipients deserved due acknowledgement.
